7 Steps to Creating the Illusion of Curves ...

If you’ve got a boyish figure, chances are you’re constantly being told that you’re lucky. It’s true, a long, lean frame is something of a blessing, but you might occasionally find yourself looking enviously at your more hourglass-ey friends.

Stylists suggest that a high-cut skirt with a flare and a thicker waistband will immediately take inches of its wearer.
